Hello everyone and welcome to MPSC Material website and today you will see books for MPSC STI exam.

So, we know that MPSC ASO-PSI-STI would be Combined Preliminary Exam so for that there will be same books for preparation of preliminary examination and paper 1 of mains examination but, the mains syllabus of paper 2 of all three exams is little bit different according to job. So, in this post we are going to list out the best books for STI preliminary exam and STI mains books.

Note: Before going to the book list you must know that you have to read NCERT Books or State Board Books at least to understand the basic concepts and basic knowledge. The NCERT Books or State Board Books are not compulsory to read but are necessary, because whenever you will enter into the world of competitive examinations then you will not be able to read the NCERT Books or State Board Books if you will prepare for District Level Exams, State Level Exams as well as Country Level Exams simultaneously.

Note: I am not considering UPSC CSE Exam at all. If you are preparing for both UPSC and this MPSC exam then you have to read different books or these books and other standard books.

(If you are student of any coaching class and they are providing you their magazine then you can refer it) by the way coaching classes makes their magazines from newspapers and other governmental websites and magazines like लोकराज्य मासिक, PIB Mumbai website, PIB website, Yojana, Kurukshetra, etc.

It’s also said that this is not that hard subject means without study you can grab 5-7 marks out of 15 marks but the question is that  “Will you manage cut off ?” because nowadays the cut off is unpredictable and higher than the previous years. There are multiple reasons to high cut off in all MPSC Exams.
